He was not in the car and was not hurt.

Suspected members of Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP) Sunday morning pelted stones at Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan’s car, which was parked at hotel Hyatt Regency on Ashram Road here. So far, police have arrested three of the “8-10 VHP members” booked in this connection.

VHP and several right-wing groups have been protesting the shooting of Shah Rukh’s upcoming movie Raees in Gujarat. These groups are upset over the actor’s comment on “growing intolerence” in India in November last year.

According to police, 8-10 people, who were on motorcycles, threw stones inside Hyatt Regency’s open parking lot where the actor’s car was parked and fled from the spot.

The incident took place at around 4.30 am.

At the time of stone pelting, the actor was not in the hotel. He reached Ahmedabad in the afternoon.

A case in this regard was registered by Wadaj Police Station on the basis of a complaint lodged by Hitendrasinh Gadhvi, fire officer at the hotel.

According to police, two of the arrested accused — Nilesh Arya and Jwalit Mehta — are active VHP workers.

The Gujarat unit of VHP, according to PTI, claimed responsibility for the incident. Its state spokesperson Raju Patel said the VHP activists threw stones at Shah Rukh’s car as part of their ongoing protest against him.

Assistant Commissioner of Police B U Jadeja said: “The damaged car was of Shah Rukh Khan. Nilesh Arya and Jwalit Mehta are active members of the VHP whereas, the rest are small VHP workers.”

According to Wadaj police inspector V G Rathod, “A case of rioting has been registered against 8-10 persons and process is on to arrest them.”

      Request to Hindutva groups : Please don't indulge in any violence or unlawful activities. If you disagree with someone, you can protest peacefully, wear black arm bands , or so any other such forms of protest , but never indulge in violence . India wishes to be identified with the advanced nations of the world, therefore we need to show the discipline like the people in those nations ...

        If they really want to show ur power why dont take any action against murderers rapists like delhi victims, criminals so that these criminals can get the punishment soon. Why is this vhp wasting his time here. Show ur power there where it is necessary so that our country can get free from such criminals..
